Off topic sounds like a great place to share some other hobbies or sports.

Since it came up in the post a couple above here's a few shots of me at play with my motorcycles. I've still got the motard but the sportbike road racer is sold to one of my buddys now. 5 years of that is enough for me.



ANd the motard (basically a dirt bike with road bike sized rims so they can use road racing or sportbike sized tires). This thing is hellish fun to ride.



And finally one showing that I'm truly old enough to retire...



I also like spending time at more workshop'y sorts of things. Here's a pic of some wood carving knives I made as a Christmas present for my father a few years back. These have since come back to me since he passed on a year ago. But it's nice to use them knowing that they were used by him for a while.



I also build and fly model airplanes. Many of them are smaller free flight rubber powered but I also like the radio controlled ones as well. Here's a frame shot of a 30 inch span model of a prewar British light racing plane.



A mid 50's vintage powered duration model.



And an electric powered radio controlled version of a pre WW2 free flight duration model. Mine is the red one in the foreground. The white one in the rear is the same design built by a buddy of mine for pure free flight and powered with a prewar spark ignition engine.



Of course I've had a few more years than some of you to get all this done so don't let me discourage any of you. An OT thread seems like a great place to see what sports or hobbies we have are. So post up!

It just depends on how serious you want to get about it.

I still have the three RC cars I got when I was 13. Two electric Tamiya models (entry level kits I built) and one gas truck. That thing was hella fast [when it worked]. I got into paintball when the gas truck's transmission and engine went out simultaneously. I didn't have that much money, so I had to choose between the two. As one can guess, I chose paintball.

I think it's good to have a few different hobbies or sports. Concentrating on one for too long tends to make a person get too focused and doesn't give them anything to fall back on when they burn out from too much of one thing.

The motorcycle racing consumed me for 5 years now. It was expensive enough that there was little money or time for anything else. I'm glad I did it since it was obviously a major brain rush but I found myself feeling "trapped" by being so focused. Just this past weekend I was talking to a guy that works at the paintball field and asked why I only ever see him behind the counter and not playing. He said that he'd played so much that it just didn't have the same magic for him any more. Yes, it can happen all to easily.

Variety is the spice of life don'cha know....

He's worn out right now. His buddy was here all day. They were chasing each other around the house for hours at a time.

Amy, nice. You gotta get one of those and have it ready to go, so that when some random guy from ST drops by you can scare him off.

That's pretty much the only thing my dog is uncooperative about. He nips/bites when he knows we're taking him for a bath. That's why I always talk my sister into doing it.

If you saw the various scabs/marks my sister put on my arm, you would probably revise that statement.
